Are we about to experience a supermodel resurgence down at newsstands? Marie Claire recently gave its cover to Gisele Bündchen, Christy Turlington currently fronts the Singaporean edition of T: The New York Times Style Magazine and now Claudia Schiffer makes an unexpected appearance on British ELLE. Following a stint on Vogue Russia earlier this year, the ultimate blond bombshell strikes a pose in an Azzedine Alaïa outfit (selected by Aurelia Donaldson) before a gray studio backdrop for the title’s May 2020 cover image shot by Sebastian Kim.
But were our forum members impressed? “Wow! Stunning surprise. Claudia looks great and the cover reminds me of late 2010-era U.K. ELLE,” appreciated Benn98.
“I love this. Clean, simple and beautiful. Claudia showed up. Quintessential ELLE…” applauded MON.

“Quintessential ELLE indeed and a much-welcomed surprise. I am ALL for this and a supermodel like Claudia on a magazine cover is just what’s needed right now — regardless of the outcome. It’s just an added bonus here that everything works!” vogue28 chimed in.
“Actually gorgeous…” praised Miss Dalloway.
SouthernVogue felt the same way: “Absolutely gorgeous.”
“The styling is more Maxim than ELLE, but Claudia did her magic and I can’t hate it,” confessed Srdjan.
Forum member liberty33r1b simply described the cover as “fantastic.”
